Homemade pancakes are one of my kids favorite breakfasts. My kids would eat pancakes every day if I would let them. I won’t lie, during the cold winter months I do let them eat pancakes every day.

Tips for Making the Best Pancakes
To have the best fluffy pancake recipe ever the most important thing is using fresh ingredients. Old ingredients will give you flat pancakes. If you are making a homemade pancake mix ahead of time then you want to be sure that you store it in an airtight container so everything stays fresh.
Do NOT over mix. You want those clumps in your pancakes, they are vital to making pancakes fluffy. If you over mix the batter you will end up with tough, unfluffy pancakes.
Don’t flip your pancakes too soon (or too late). When you see the bubbles starting to pop flip that pancake over! Overcooking pancakes will also make them tough and unfluffy.
Use homemade pancake mix. For the best pancakes recipe, the most important thing is the pancake base. You can not make the best pancakes ever if you have a yucky base. This easy homemade pancake mix is the best one there is, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Grease your pan or skillet well. It is also important that you grease your pan well. Pancakes will stick to a pan if it is not greased enough.
This spatula that is pancake sized is my favorite thing to use when I am making homemade pancakes. It is huge and makes it so your pancakes won’t flop over when you are flipping them!
What to serve with Pancakes
There are lots of tasty sides to serve with pancakes for breakfast. Some of our favorites are:

- canadian bacon
- Fruit Salad
How to Freeze Pancakes
I like to make large batches of pancakes at a time to make breakfasts during the busy week even easier.
Freezing pancakes is so easy. Just cook your pancakes and allow them to cool. Once they are cooled stack into piles of serving size you normally make. We do 3 pancakes per pile. Wrap each pile with plastic wrap and then put all wrapped piles of pancakes into a gallon size freezer bag and place in the freezer.
How to Reheat Frozen homemade pancakes
To reheat the homemade pancakes, remove a frozen pancake stack and heat in the microwave in the plastic wrap for 30-45 seconds depending on your microwave.
